RHIC & AGS Annual Users' Meeting

Workshop 5


Puzzling Spin : A testbed for QCD

Back | Homepage

Date: Tuesday, May 27, 2008
Organizers: Renee Fatemi, Ralf Seidl, and Feng Yu
Local Contact: Ralf Seidl
Time: Full Day
Location: Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555 - Chemistry
Recent experimental and theoretical results are providing a wealth of information which will shed light on several poorly understood pieces of the spin puzzle. In addition to reviewing the status of the most recent transverse and longitudinal spin data and theory papers, this workshop will present a fresh look at the global analyses aiming to consolidate and interpret these data within the broader context of the total spin structure of the nucleon. These talks naturally lead to and will inform discussions about the direction of future experimental efforts within the spin community.
